We found the accomodation very clean but mediocre, not one of our memorable overnight stays in South Island. The decor was tired and the bed and pillows rather past their best. Having read on the hotel website about the gourmet food etc I have to say we were disappointed both with dinner and breakfast. Dinner was too fussy, with clashing flavours, strange combinations and tough steak. Breakfast was just there for you to help yourself - no matter what time you came into the dining room. We found the dishes in heated trays rather overcooked and unappetizing and we were refused a simple boiled egg. One sensed that coach parties were the prime concern and individual guests came second. This is not a hotel for discerning travellers although it was obvious that the coach parties were having a great time. The hotel is in a lovely position with good views of the lake. There are very good laundry facilities which is a bonus.
